Creative Loafing Tampa recommends tonight’s PLEASURES show at The Bends for their tour kick-off and the premiere of their new horror short film “You’re Gonna Get It”:
“Our favorite psych-rock hellbringers, Pleasures, stage a film premiere within the walls of one of the busiest dives just off Central Avenue.”
Head over to Impose for the premiere of the new music video from PLEASURES!
“With their new video for ‘Gemini Twin,’ PLEASURES hold nothing back. Directed by Robert Jensen, a stop motion video takes the viewer into desolation and desire, a constant amalgam of confusion– exactly what the song’s subject matter entails.”
PLEASURES homecoming show tonight at Fubar Downtown! Tampa Bay Times previews the show:
At WMNF’s Tropical Heatwave in April, Sarasota’s Pleasures blasted New World Brewery with a typhoon of digitally twisted prog-rock that blew away the patio. Wanna know what you missed? Catch ’em at 8 p.m. Sunday at Fubar, 658 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. It’s something of a homecoming show for the quartet, which features Sons of Hippies’ Katherine Kelly on lead vocals and guitar, following a short tour behind their latest album F—ed Up Dreams Come True.
Creative Loafing Tampa previews tonight’s PLEASURES homecoming show at Fubar Downtown:
Just like that, Pleasure is back. After a five-week tour that took the greater Bay area psych-rockers through the Sunshine State, up through the midwest and right through the butthole of Texas, frontwoman Katherine Kelly & co. return to the ‘Burg (who cares what the cool kids call it) for a homecoming show that also serves to celebrate the release of their 2016 LP, Fucked Up Dreams Come True, which plays like a variety hour where the devil gets a hold of an MPC while every demented soul he’s been left with in hell fills the figurative studio with strange howling noises all running through a pedal board only an octopod could navigate. The effort is a pure dance party, and it takes all kinds of cajones to go on the road the way Pleasures does, so buy them a shot or three at this rager. Experience that m-fer below.
